I've pirated/emulated really old games that are nearly impossible to find like Earthbound. My perspective with games like those is that buying a hard copy of Earthbound doesn't really hurt anybody, the copy is most likely going to be used when I buy it.

Portal came with 4 other games for a $60 price tag it a whole different slice of pie. "
You make a point totally slipped my mind there. But still, I don't think the price was counted in the review still. "
Well, that just really stupid IMO.  PS: Sorry if I am making sound likes it your fault :P "
I remember hearing a lot of debates from people on whether the price should be counted in a review or not. It's a weird subject, I'm kind of on the fence with that I suppose.

Yeah that slipped my mind completely still sorry have the flu and I'm on cough medicine I'm not really listening to myself speak although I think the review wasn't counting that. I'm not necessarily defending the game entirely, it's a bungie quality game that's about it. Personally I wouldn't recommend it if you are just buying it for the single player but I still think the review wasn't counting the price.

They are kind of big. Their games do better in Japan than in the US. though. "
They're a fairly big company, they do a lot of publishing jobs for games and such.

Wait do you mean like moving the entire stick in a circular motion or do you mean the stick remains still and erect but you can turn the stick from the top?

I would think it's worth it just because it opens up more content for you to enjoy, like your courage being higher and such so your eligible to do some of the social links that require such a thing.
